Swords Castle is a fabulous castle to explore. It’s located in the town of Swords in North County Dublin. There is no car park at the castle but there is on street parking nearby or other carparks around the town / shopping centre.
The castle is large and well kept and you can do a self-guided tour which is great as the kids can spend as much time or as little time as they want in each part. There is lots to see and some things you can touch. The staff were very friendly and there is lots of space to run around in the grounds as well! You can go into quite a number of the rooms and imagine easily what life would have been like in a castle hundreds of years ago.
There are sometimes family friendly events held at the castle too so do keep an eye on their website for the next one!
